think if president obama had inherited bill clinton's economy, a surplus. that wasn't the case. so i think the president needs to remind america where we were and where we have been and the accomplishments that we've made. as far as mitt romney is concerned, romney can go after president obama all he wants tonight. he's got some serious repair work to do after the 47% comment, because that was a real snapshot as to who he is. plus, his private sector experience has got a checkered past. he's an outsource iceoutsourcer. he's a guy who's gone to the bottom line who hasn't been good to middle class families. he can't put a number on how many jobs he's actually created. but we hear these testimonials more and more all the time because of the hardship the middle class has gone through because of the economic model he presented in the private sector. that is a huge target for the president tonight, and i think he'll exploit it. >> steve schmidt, from a republican perspective, looking at that plus 19 number that president obama has got on handling issue of the middle class, how does mitt ro
? president obama was hanging out with bill ayers and jeremiah cite. i was here. i'm not allowed to bring that up. >> i wish mitt romney would play like that. >> allen west, they've been dumping all over him, and he blew them away. do not mess with colonels who have not in combat. >> that's true. very true. >> sean: you mentioned something conservatives are saying. they want mitt to be more aggressive. you want it as well. >> yes. i think his campaign has been soft. his ads -- you impair his tads to obama -- compare his ads to obama. obama's ads are tough, well done, and on message. pounding the daylights out of him, and romney's or -- >> sean: i don't get it. i don't know why we're not seeing more pounding by him. do you think it starts next wednesday in colorado? >> sometimes he says positive things about obama. he cares about the middle class. no, barack obama doesn't care about the middle class. if he cared about the middle class, he wouldn't be putting through obama tax hikes on people in the middle class. >> let me just say that next wednesday night, this is it. they need to turn th
bill. so is president obama pledging taxpayer money to push this back until after the election to give himself political cover? joining us is haley barbour. welcome, governor. why is he doing this. >> the law is clear, because the sequestration, companies are going to make layoffs, they have to give notice. the obama administration is telling, don't tell anybody you're going to get laid off because what's happening in the administration, but they go beyond that and say not only don't comply with the law, but we'll make the taxpayers pay your legal bills. i mean, it's outrageous. it really is. >> greta: i pulled up old numbers, like for fannie mae where we paid legal bills, three people, $99 million. there's no policing of the lawyers. there's no reason the taxpayers should pay one dime in this instance for the defense contractors. where does the president get the authority to pledge our money to pay legal bills for breaking the law? >> well, obviously he doesn't have that authority. simply does not have that authority. but, you know, you talk about this egregious violation where they'r
obama did get a bill passed very early -- >> well, he had both sides on his side, right? for the first two years of his presidency, he had all in, you know? he had the leadership in terms of the democratic side, house and senate. so how is it possible that he didn't get more done when he had both sides of the aisle in his corner? >> if you let me finish, he did get a big stimulus bill passed, i would say within 6 to 12 months of taking office, the president's hand starts being felt on the economy. as you go through the four-year term, it then depends how big a problem you're dealing with. we were not dealing in early 2009 with the problems that are going to go away in one year or two years if super man was president. it was not going to be fixed in four years. by the way, i don't think he communicated that as well as he should have. to the american public. >> is there any evidence of business experience failing in the white house? >> well, there's herbert hoover. the best businessman to ascend to the white house was herbert hoover, by a margin. i wouldn't consider him a very successful
to bash banks and that is as phony as a $3 bill. also a judge strikes down pennsylvania's voter id law and the obama administration is telling companies it is okay to disregard the law when it comes to handing out pink slips in advance to big budget cuts. all three happening before the election. mitt romney has finally put meat on the bones of his tax reform idea. he floated the idea of a $17,000 cap on tax reform reduction. >> you could say everyone is going to get up to a $17,000 deduction. you can fill that bucket if you will and higher income people might have a lower number. >> this is brand new stuff. we have howard dean former vermont governor and candidate. and let's look at this for a second. what do you think? a $17,000 cap on tax deductions for everybody as a way of being fair because the upper end would pay more. what do you think? >> i don't have a problem with the eidea of deductions. here you are. you guys are talking about the private sector all the time. so, i've been convinced because of the high rate of canadian home ownership, i'm not convinced of doing away with ch
. first he's got to find a way to dent the argument that bill clinton and barack obama made at the democratic convention about how president obama's done as well as anyone could do in turning the economy around the last four years. secondly, he's got to make a positive case with passion, with credibility for his own economic plans, for how he's going to make life better for 100% of americans. third, he's going to have to deal with that 47% video which has really taken a toll on his campaign. he's got to do all those things at the same time. we've seen the history of debates, tyler. it is not easy to fundamentally turn a race around but we have seen from our nbc/"wall street journal" poll that he's within three points nationally. still possible for him to win. got get going down. >> amman, there is some buzz about a plan that romney hs apparently floated for basically a $17,000 cap on tax deductions for americans. explain it. you've crunched the number. what's the headline here? >> tyler, the headline here is that the romney campaign e-mailed me this morning on this. they say
that was the original plan. that didn't come through because congress failed to pass a climate bill which would have helped. president obama is doing everything he can to make energy more difficult when it comes to coal in the united states and other forms of drilling and things like that. so what's happened is it is ideology that is driving this policy. they want renewable energy. it is based on fear of man made global warming. they say we have to get off carbon based energy. need to do it fast. this is their ideology. that is why they're doing stuff that makes no sense. federal government as venture capitalist makes no sense. melissa: venture capitalist their record is not great. they have four companies have gotten money so far. two of them are solyndra and abound solar which have gone bankrupt. other two are solo power we're talking about now getting another loan. there you go, $187 billion in business -- 187 million heading down the path that i don't see how could possibly be successful. this 1336 technologies . what do you know about that one. they are lined up for $150 million loan from you a
outside the united nations. thank you. top israeli official tells israeli newspaper that president obama does not give his country the same sense of security that bill clinton did during peace negotiations in 2000. the unnamed official says, "president clinton made us feel like he had our back at camp david. we felt he'd be there if things went bad. president obama doesn't give us the same sense that he'd be there." interesting added part of this story that article was tweeted out by the official press office. today, the president said through the chief spokesperson what many others in the administration have already acknowledged, that the deadly attack against u.s. mission in benghazi was, in fact, terrorism. thaw want specifics on what was known before the attack and about the perpetrators afterwards. here is catherine herridge. >> in addition to branding the benghazi attack as terrorism at the u.n. today, secretary of state hillary clinton acknowledged suspected involvement of aqim. >> they are working with other extremists to undermined the transition underway in north africa as we s
president bill clinton is getting back on the campaign trail for president obama. mr. clinton will be in new hampshire next wednesday, the same day they face off in their first debate. back in 1992 clinton was the first democrat to carry new hampshire since 1964. billionaire george soros is donating more than a billion dollars to the super-pac after initially being against super-pacs. soros will donate $500,000 to two other super-pacs supporting democrats. "snl" is at it again. cast member jay farrell channeling obama in last night's primetime election special. >> but things are getting better. remember that movie "the sixth sense"? i'm like the kid in that movie. i see employed people. i know you don't see them, don't even know they're there. one day all of you will be bruce willis, and you'll realize that you were employed all along. >>> time for the your business entrepreneur of the week. andrew is the fourth generation owner of rosenwach tanks. you'll find their handmade wooden water tanks on hundreds of new york city rooftops. today they're shaped by hand with half-century old tools. he
the employees before election day, but not so fast. obama administration says warning workers in the next few months is inappropriate. even saying that government will pick up some company legal bills in case layoff workers sue because their bosses failed to give them enough warning. republicans charge the administration is trying to prevent voters in swing states from getting layoff notices days before the election. in a letter to the office of management and budget, republican senator john mccain, kelly aott and lindsey graham say president obama put his own re-election ahead of the interest of working american. and obama administration is cynically trying to skirt the warn act to keep american people in dark about the looming national security and fiscal crisis. now other republicans are demanding the legal justif justification for the move. there is political uncertainty surrounding the cut and the pentagon says it's not even fully planning for them, preferring that congress reverse them. they say the automatic cut will be gradual. >> what would be affected is the awarding of new contract
frustration when he referred to barack obama as that one. let's listen. >> it was an energy bill on the floor of the senate loaded down with goodies, billions for the oil companies and it was sponsored by bush and cheney. you know who voted for it? that one. you know who voted against it? me. >> any way, what will be the clues to oh tell us in realtime who is winning? we'll go to a columnist for the washington post and mark halperin. i want be to start with dana. i love your attitude. any way, what's your first way of looking at this? how do you know who is winning? >> well, i'm watching it in the filing center. i'm going to do a grown and laugh index. if you're growning when the guy is talking, he's losing. if you're laughing, that's better. you can do that for yourself at home. if you're cringing, the guy is not winning. romney has set this up in terms of zingers. >> why does it get out that he couldn't sleep last night? everything seems to leak out of this campaign. is he landing the zingers or do they boomerang next to him? ultimately, is he able to land a serious blow. if we're debating
and obama up by seven and the latest nbc wall street journal poll. >> a new poll from telemundo, obama is up by 50, howard, among hispanics. let's go to howard fineman. back to my big question. he's had a terrible month or two. he does not look presidential. bill clinton and the president have been able to build up the notion that the economy's better than we thought. 57% of the people think that the economy is getting better. what a dramatic advantage. >> well, i agree with steve. this is mitt's moment. he said months ago to supporters just wait until i get on the stage with the president. just wait until i get to confront him, when i get to explain my version of reality versus his. that's when i'm going to shine. and he has to do it tonight. i agree with you and steve, that he has to be specific. he has to be detailed. partly because people haven't warmed to mitt romney as a person. they don't really trust him yet as a person. all the more important that he set out a specific plan, that makes sense. and that he does it in a humane way. i agree with steve. he has to be -- it's okay if he's
that obama will win. so maybe nothing short of a clear win can be a little problematic for them. >> let's consider what some conservatives are saying. let's start with bill crystal and what he had to say about the debate. >> every liberal professor i read or her advice is to be likable. you have to take care of your likability. forget it. it's too late for that. they both did well, it was so nice to have a respectful debate. they all got along. that's over. he's got to get under president obama's skin and really clarify the choice ahead. >> so karen finney, forget about being likable. don't try to get gentlemenly compliments after the debate. just go after the present as hard as you can. >> clearly bill crystal thinks that is not a winning proposition for governor romney am i do think that romney needs to be relatable, and em pathetic which so far has been very difficult for him. he needs to not come off as i'm up here and you're the 47%, you silly people, the way he can at times. and he probably needs to deny himself the instinct, there have been times on the campaign trail where he tr
on why he's switching from obama tropical storm 9-11 then bill o'reilly and laura ingraham are here together. what do they expect in the first presidential debate. don't miss their predictions. first, on this day in 1982, the number one song was "jack and diane" by john cougar mellencamp [ male announcer ] in blind taste tests, even ragu users chose prego. prego?! but i've bought ragu for years.

this thought the other day with the debates coming up. i can't remember a single thing that bill clinton said or did in the 1996 debates against bob dole. and i think that that is exactly what barack obama's goal is over the next few weeks. >> and you know, joe, the thing that's so fascinating is that we've ended up, because both candidates have not put forward very specific agendas, we're ending up having an election that's a referendum on bill clinton's time and george w. bush's time. and most people think back to the clinton era as being a better period of time as the bush era. so barack obama's winning that debate by proxy because he's associated himself with the policies of bill clinton and with the person of bill clinton. >> i think we've got to start thinking for real about the probability of a clinton monument on the mall. i mean, you know, who would have thunk it? >> didn't he just say that he could run in ireland, and he could also run in france. >> he could run in france because he was born in louisiana. >> that's a true statement. >> ireland's a better fit for him, though, i think
's alluding to is that over the last six months or so, bill clinton disagreed with president obama's main policies on the economy and taxes, and that could be seen as a help to mr. romney. >> brian: mitt romney is apparent and this is the story about being a favorite. do you have a favorite? i never heard it admitted. in terms of a kid, i have notates. steve, can you say the same? peter is listening. >> he is listening and so are any other childrenment do i have a favorite? no. are there times when one of the other children might be bugging me more than the others? perhaps. take a look right there. that is a picture of a canadian radio show host named buzz bishop. here he is -- this all started, he blogged that, quote, if i were to be absolutely honest, my oldest son is the favorite of the two. why did he say that? here is buzz bishop. >> need to take that language and call him my favorite? he's just the one i relate to easier and if that means he's my favorite and those are -- that's the language, i don't think that's too evil. >> gretchen: i understand this, okay, especially from a fath
's what bill and karl rove are talking about. >> when new's agency like the cbs news on the radio report the polling and it shows that barak obama is leapt to a big league they gets in people's mind and that can only help the president. that helps the president because the perception that he will be the winner? >> right. and this was not easy to dig out the numbers. they are not printed in the website and go into the instrument and dig the data out of there. >> mitt romney's wife ann going on the record with greta discussing the current state of the campaign and what it is like to watch him get critized. >> when you love someone and he's out there putting himself on the line. it is hard for the families to see them beaten up so. he goes out and makes things better. and he's really quite an extraordinary person. the only thing i can do to bring clarity to the issue is stand there and be a character witness for my husband who is a good and decent person who i have seen in our years was marriage always caring for others. he's not the guy that talks about things. >> make sure you tune in wit
to the poll they did with cbs, barak obama up by ten of the as karl said last night with bill o'reilly, it looks like what they're doing is they're actually talking to about ten points more democrats. that perhaps could explain why a local newspaper, the columbus dispatch, shows barak obama just up by five points. why would the main stream media do this? according to a republican pollster named john mcclock lain is to suppress republican turnout through what he calls media polling bias. people are starting to do the early voting and if the message gets out there and the main stream media, shows over action mitt romney is going to lose, don't bother voting. >> brian: how can anyone vote before the debates. they have it as a dead heat with rasmussen nationally. the only one. >> steve: 2% more democrats than republicans. it's 38 to the democrats. 36 republican, and 26 for the independents. >> gretchen: i do think there is a subliminal message in these daily polling things which isn't always great for the voter because it can sort of build this ground swell of fact, kind of like wh

"and he's losing." super pacs make me crazy. each party -- each candidate could spend over $1 billion. 8 $2 billion campaign. i wish somebody would come up with a model that would pass constitutional muster. citizens united, is corporation a person? we have to find a middle ground. this is an example of a bad card team. it is the truth, fast and furious case where they gave guns too bad guys. they were used to kill an american officer. executive privilege denied any further investigations of the case. it is the non smoking gun. this says "we are spending more than we are taking an." "and?" the reaction to what is happening in syria. the president says "president putin, a word?

, really the most striking thing that's happened is the gains president obama has made with seniors who have been the strongest -- the hardest, most out-of-reach demographic for him. they've moved him dramatically since the ryan selection, since medicare, bill clinton's arguments on medicare at the convention, it became central to the discussion, there's been a big shift towards obama in that category. >> this doesn't take medicare off the table. we still have to deal with this. >> you're exactly right. medicare and medicaid are unchecked going to cripple this country. we saw erskine bowles earlier this week in chicago, tom, and i said erskine, isn't it the truth that medicare and medicaid by itself is going to consume every cent that the federal government takes in in 20 years? he said no, that's not true. he said, it's doing it right now. he said, this year alone, in the fiscal year that just ended, every dime the federal government got went to pay medicare, medicaid, social security and interest on the debt. that means everything else that on outside of medicare, medicaid, social sec
election. look at the latest fox news poll showing president obama holding his lead over governor romney. we will bring in our campaign insiders. representative john leboutillier, a former republican congressman. and pat caddell, former pollster for jimmy carter. and doug schoen former pollster for bill clinton. doug, the numbers you saw on the screen, since the conventions, the president has gained four and romney has lost two, a swing of six points. >> that is where the race is. there are some polls in the swing states showing outsize leaps for obama the ink they are over sampling democrats and the mainstream media is away from what the race is. that is, a close contest. the president is about 48 or 49 percent approval and vote share. the governor's campaign has lost support. he is down around 43 percent. the 47 percent combined with the drift in the campaign has reduced his vote share, but it is still a a race, and the debate will be critical. >>gregg: this poll shows president obama at 49 and 44 and that can chain instantly. some of the media have written governor romney's obituary,
that affirmative action bill and the civil rights bill? from what i'm seeing right now, it seems like it's just this backlash against the white community like obama has a war against white heritage of something. i don't understand it. >> host: gary johnson. >> guest: well, we should not discriminate, and i think government policies in the past have gotten us to a point where i really don't see that discrimination. so, i'm going to sign on to legislation repealing affirmative action because i think we have moved beyond that. but i'll just offer up a prediction again. obama, romney, we're going find ourselves with a heightened police state, find ourselves with continued military interventions that are going to result? we bomb iran, we're going to find ourselves with 100 million enemies to this country we wouldn't have otherwise had, and this unsustainable debt and spending, the day is sooner than later, and we all recognize that we have to address it, and yet we're arguing over who is going to spend more money on medicare when we should have an absolute raging debate and discussion over how we ha
